This material world is actually meant for misery, just as a prison house is meant for punishment.
The real problem of life in the material world is to solve the question of birth, death, old age and disease.
Srimad Bhagavatam 2.3.2-7,
There are so many dangers in life because the material world is a place of danger.
This beautiful material world is nothing but a shadowy reflection of the reality, the kingdom of God.
Srimad Bhagavatam 1.19.13,
Material world is like a dream.
This material world is a prison house for the spirit soul, to escape from here, chant the holy names of the Lord.
